The OP shared a story that has us thinking we may have found the real-life version of Cinderella!

The 19-year-old typically spends a few days at her mom's house each week, and the rest of the time with her dad and stepmother.
The OP says that while her dad was away on business recently, the house was absolutely disgusting.
Understandably, the Reddit user says she's not about to clean up after her stepmother, so she left the mess there.
When OP's dad got home from his trip, he was furious at the state of the house. And when he confronted her about the state of the house, she explained to him that it was all her stepmother's mess.
But the Redditor's dad told her she "should've been the bigger person and cleaned the mess."
Here's how people reacted.
"Don't clean her messes."
"You are not responsible for being the bigger person."
"If you've cleaned up after yourself, you've done your part."
"Trophy wife made a mess."
She needs to clean her own mess!
"Tell him he can be the bigger person."
"She should be embarrassed."
"So your dad wants you to be her maid?"
Oh, hell no!
"That's a bit rich!"
Cinderella? Is that you?
"Don't play that game with him."
"She is not your responsibility."
"You are his child, not the maid!"
"You deserve better."
"She needs to hire a cleaning service."
What's your take on this situation? Do you think the OP is overreacting, or is it entirely ridiculous that her dad would expect her to clean up after her stepmother?
Surely everyone can just clean up after themselves? After all, Cinderella was a fairytale, and OP should not be treated like a live-in maid!
